The album takes on from Jon Lord’s Australian club tour with the band in 2003, which resulted in a live album and DVD.
In January 2003 Jon Lord was in Australia to perform the ‘Concerto For Group And Orchestra’ at the Sydney Opera House with Australian band George and premier ‘Boom Of The Tingling Strings’ at Melbourne.
An accompanying club tour of Jon’s solo material had to be changed when a small injury in Sydney put his piano playing abilities out. The Hoochie Coochie Men came to his rescue and the solo dates were changed from strings and piano to smoking Hammond tinged blues rock.
